The HOW2 LGBTIQ Inclusion Training can provide you with a practical way to work towards these goals.
During this training participants will:
The program involves four sessions held 6-8 weeks apart combined with workplace activities provide participants with increased knowledge and capacity in:
1. Auditing your service
2. Consulting consumers
3. Educating colleagues
4. Developing and implementing an action plan
5. Managing obstacles
6. Evaluating changes
This program, presented by SHINE SA, is based on a set of 6 national standards developed by Rainbow Health Victoria, in conjunction with QIP (Quality, Innovation & Performance), known as Rainbow Tick Accreditation.
NOTE: Although we refer to LGBTIQ inclusion, this course will also cover a broader spectrum of LGBTIQA+ inclusion.
A minimum of 2 participants from each organisation are required to attend. This program provides the tools to implement change, therefore participants should preferably hold leadership roles, dedicated Rainbow Tick accreditation roles, or be in charge of areas like quality, accreditation, service design, evaluation, diversity and engagement.
Tasks are assigned prior to the first session and at the end of sessions 1, 2 & 3. These tasks involve practical activities at participants’ workplaces to start the change management process towards accreditation.
Important: Organisations can choose to be assessed against the 6 national standards through an external process undertaken by QIP in order to achieve the Rainbow Tick. The HOW2 LGBTIQ Inclusion Training can support organisations seeking to achieve this accreditation and is suitable for any organisation seeking to become more inclusive for LGBTI clients and staff.
